My new BPM experience, second post.
Hello again people!!!
I´m Alejandro Sierra (Sirnejo) writing from Bogotá, Colombia!
This post is an update of my new experience in the BPM world! you can find my first post My new BPM experience, a process automation!
This week was amazing for my project!
It was very hard to wait until I go back to home to advance a little bit with my project every day in my desktop computer so with a little effort I bought a brand new laptop to install on it Win XP English version and my SAP BPM NetWeaver platform with the SAP Netweaver developer studio!!!
Thanks to my first post I was contacted by some very interesting people offering help for me in my blog posting, finding resources and everything I could need help with! This network is really amazing and it really works!
The first person that contacted me was Marylyn Pratt, who offered me her help and contacted me with David Herrema, who has a lot of experience in the network and won the last SAP Marketing Innovators Competition!
Ok, next Friday I have an appointment with SAP Andean & Caribean engineers to review the current state of the project so I will give some details about the project.
The project is to automate through a BPMS the procurement process for the model company we have in the Javeriana University for SAP and industrial automation classes. You can find more information about it here (in Spanish).
This is the way it looks in the industrial automation class’s documentation:
I already have the diagram in Process Composer in SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio, currently working on the sub process diagrams.
I found this diagram of the SAP ERP Procure to pay process that has been really helpful to figure out the sub processes and choosing the WS but I have a huge question for all of you:
How can I “simulate” the data that is supposed to come from the MRP system to the Purchase request generation task?
Any documentation about how to connect a BPM process to a full working SAP ERP system like the one found in the ES workspace???
For now, I’ll keep reading and learning about all this BPM world!
Thanks for reading!!!
